Bison shot by Idaho fish and game near Henry's lake

The was a report that Idaho fish and game officers shot and killed bison sleeping near the road to Henry's lake. You don't kill elk resting by the road and they are as big a hazard as a buffalo. Is this report true and if it is why were they shot and not hazed back into a more remote area?
Bison are under the jurisdiction of the Idaho Department of Agriculture.
